The Radar Skills Trainer (RST) is an advanced tool that:

  • enables users to perform pre-simulation practice (Part Task Practice or Skill Acquisition);
  • provides a realistic environment for training in OJTI skills;
  • includes exercises to support basic controller training and OJTI training.

The RST simulates the controller working position (CWP) and the pilot working position (PWP). Trainers can use the Exercise Preparation Tool (EPT) to create exercises or use the exercise scenarios supplied with the application. It works on the basis of objective measurement. For any exercise, a combination of predetermined objectives and airspace design provides a scenario to teach specific skills.

A replay function is provided, to both instructors and students, so that attempted exercises may be analysed at a later stage. In practice the student completes the exercises and receives a debriefing from the programme. The trainer can then review the exercise using the replay function and debrief the student on techniques and other items that the tool currently does not assess.

A networked course management system (CMS) version offers additional facilities to manage the delivery of exercise scenarios to a group of students and to monitor their progress.
